I would like to edit remote files with Emacs using an ssh connection. Is it possible with the default packages of Emacs 23.2 ?

If it is possible, what's the best way to do it ? Is it possible to benefit from the Speedbar ? Or even to compile remotely (C++ environment) ?


You can use the TRAMP package.

TrampMode is a part of Emacs starting with version 22.1.
  • Thanks. And about the speed bar ? Is it possible ? – Cedric H. Dec 8 '10 at 14:11
  • I made a quick test and yes, it seems possible. Since TRAMP stands for Transparent Remote Access, Multiple Protocols I'm expecting that most of the common functionalities work transparently. – cYrus Dec 8 '10 at 14:37
  • this thing just hang for me, is there any other choice – zinking Jan 20 '14 at 9:16
